It somewhat amused us that our three year old daughter didn't seem exactly sure why we were there as there weren't many old cars. :D If there's another one next year I wonder if someone from OJC could get in touch and maybe get a designated area for cars over 10 years old?

Nice pics- as ever Darren. Couldnt you find mine -or was it too dirty for you?I agree- seperate area set aside for 'oldies' makes more sense. There weren't many of us there- and we seemed to be spread all over.I dont understand Goodwood -they have the perfect money making opportunity here with food, sponsorships, dealers (new & old) yet people are leaving within 1 hour cos there's no focal point , centre of interest etc.They didnt even have the start line caf open this time -just a few Burger vans. We left fairly promptly for a beer & sandwich in Brighton -watching the 'old crocks'. Much more entertaining than a line of near identical barried, financed , over powerful modern non entities.

I recall her valid protests by sitting on the road, refusing to get out of the way of modern machinery. Very commendable.

Couldnt you find mine -or was it too dirty for you?

I was making my way over to the car park when I noticed those two Subaru 360's turn up. Needless to say I was somewhat distracted and by the time I composed myself you'd gone! Regardless, this is Mr Bickles pick up spotted at Beaulieu a couple of years ago:

Whats the difference between a 6 and 8? Is the 8 like a GS engined one?

These are few more sights and stumbles in Southampton over the last week. It amazes me how many older cars there are down here - I missed a gold Hyundai Stellar, Yugo 45 and various 70's Fords and BL tat.

Christ on stick. Apparently not an official model. I can only assume by its 2792CC engine, an innocent Granada was butchered.

Posted Image

Continuing the tasteful american theme. I simply had no idea that the CF had such a connection with native Americans, huskys and golden eagles. File under 'line dancing' and 'wife beating'. Possibly.

Not so many of these now, in the early 90's I saw dozens hacking up the roads.

Oh! Interesting... The badge is either wrong or the car's wearing a tailgate off a 6. The Ami 8 is the facelifted model of the Ami 6. Here's an Ami 6 Break:

Cheers for the Ami info mnde, I know they were quite popular in the UK and had quite a long production run and had loads of variations, but didn't quite realise how many.

Seth, the sceptre and Imp were in a garage just out of Southampton - there was a 1930's American car in the shop window too, no idea what it was though.

Some more random spots in the area. The volume of spots that appear here co-incide with my current 'freelance' status of occupation.....let the good times roll.

They belong to Alan Waterman who restores rally cars, he used to race Escorts, Rileys, an AE86 Corolla and a Lada 2105 on the RAC rally. He uses the Volvo for classic rallys. The Peugeot belongs to a client - clearly not a T16, but is prep'd properly. I can only assume the wheels won't stay as they are....

Camry is an excellent find, pov-spec and beige.

C...SAP registration rings a bell, maybe some Nissan press cars used that? My list still won't work :cry: I suppose any Nissan sold round Sussex would carry a similar plate though, and perhaps there was a degree of favouritism round there with the olduns and Nissan UK being local.

Cheers VWpowered, you're absolutely right about the Golf, I came across another one at the recent RR petersfield meet. The Sunbeam too is a sloppy error on my part, again mentioned a while back - I think this was a featured car in Retro Cars magazine a few months back.

Nigel, I will continue my endevours to convert the list so its legable on your computer - XP reads the Excel document with no conversion, I know there are shareware applications online that *might* convert but they're often from from dubious sources and usually contain spyware and goat-dwarf-root vegetable filth or something. The Sunny registration does look vaguely familiar to me too. Maybe a sister car used for a What Car test?

Been meaning to travel up to Calne off the A4 for a while to visit the Atwell Wilson Motor Museum ever since I heard that they kept a Toyota Crown in there. As it turns out I was surprised by the volume of interesting cars I saw - and not a single MG or Austin Healey. Many of the cars having a working life as wedding cars - so there's the usual array of Jags, rollers and American cars - thankfully there isn't too much of the crass 80's and 90's wedding cars. The museum is run by very friendly and enthusiastic bunch of guys, who were kind enough to feed me with sausage rolls and a cup of tea at the end of the day.

As was this Diesel Granada, surely every bride would want to be taken to the regsitery office in this.

But I think it would a toss up between these two for me. The Nova has an interesting history, it was bought in Kuala lumpur, Malaysia when new and driven by the then Arch Bishop of Italy. Not only that but the car was serviced at a Chevy specialist in the UK for most of its life. Worthy of a Raymondboy tale, but the documentation suggests this is true. The Crown was bought new by a lady from Plymouth in 1978. She kept it until 1998, when it was donated to the museum. Not sure how popular it is as a wedding car.....

Asides from these working girls, they had even more delights, photographing the cars was quite difficult as they are so tightly packed together - there is a planned extension for the future - so excuse the slightly odd angles and contrasts. I was holding up the camera above my head in most of these shots.

This Celica was properly restored and donated to the museum - the owner has asked for all offers for the car to be ignored. It does make sense in terms of free long term car storage. This car is tucked away in the corner.

That place looks absolutely wonderful. I should ask them if they want a Subaru Leone or Mazda 929 wagon for their collection, as you say a great permanent home for these obscure old shitters. Knowing my luck i'd get the flock permanently installed, only for them to get a compulsory purchase order on their sheds so a new 'Tesco Metro' (ooh some irony there) can be built on the site. Looks like my ultimate dream to be involved in a project like that. 478/10
